Bought a pool from tallman because of their 50 year warranty. After 10 years the gelcoat is Completely gone down to bare fiberglass in many many places. Tallman will not repair .I would advise buying elsewhere. I will tell everyone It is very costly to repair this issue. Have friend with fiberglass pools much older than ours with no issues from other builders. Warning don't buy.

Anne was pleasant to deal with on the sales side of things. Edward was easy and very helpful for the planning of excavation through the completion of the project. We could not be happier with the final build of the pool. Carlos and the excavation crew did above and beyond leveling the yard and dealing with tree stumps etc. the only delay was due to rain, which was out of their control obviously. Everything was done in a very timely manor and Edward was quick to respondto to any questions I had. Once I am finished with landscaping I will upload pictures.

My wife and I recently had a 14x34 pool, the Abacos, manufactured and installed by Tallman Pools of Jonesboro, GA. and we are thrilled with the result. After visiting the factory and meeting Anne, Edward, and Ed Sr. we decided to have Tallman Pools do all the excavation, installation, grading, and concrete work as well. We wanted to deal with one company through the entire process and afterwards. I must say that Edward, Anne, Michelle, John, Eduardo, and Carlos were great to deal with and ALL the workers on site were professional and friendly throughout the project. I had a couple of extra needs on my site that required extra labor and equipment over and above the contracted work and Tallman Pools willingly worked with me, which was really appreciated! The installation process took about 4 weeks from beginning to end, not including landscaping.The end result is a beautiful pool and deck for us to enjoy from April through October (we bought a heat pump also). Fantastic job from a truly great company...thanks to all! HURRY UP APRIL!" Sincerely, Jay D.. Lawrenceville, GA.

Ed, Kary Keasler here from Birmingham, AL. Here are a few pictures of our pool that we purchased from Tallman Pools. Me and my family could not be more pleased. One thing that constantly impresses me is that you are always there before, during and after the sale. You, Rebecca, and your staff go out of your way to make sure the new pool owner is happy. It is rare these days to get the level of service especially from the owner of the company! As you can see, the pool, the deck and landscaping turned out great. I will try to send some pictures soon of how the LED lights at night look. If you ever have a prospect or client in Birmingham and need a good recommendation, just let me know. I would give you and your staff 5 stars! The factory tour and time that you and Rebecca spent with us was great and was well worth our trip to Atlanta and we are very happy with our investment. Your crew was also very knowledgeable and worked quickly and efficiently during the setup installation. It is nice to know you are not far away and always accessible if we need you. I really appreciate that. Thanks again and talk to you soon. -Kary Keasle

Tallman Pools made a long-time dream come true for me! They were lovely and professional from the start. Anne Koleck is a no-nonsense type person that shoots things to you straight which I really appreciated. No uncomfortable salesmanship, just the facts and a few suggestions as to what she thinks you may like. The team that came out to install the pool worked at a hyper-pace. I had a fully installed pool in just two days.However, the dastardly rain that simply would not let up all Summer really had us derailed, speaking of plans not working as expected. But, hey, I managed to be patient, and they did the same, and the pool was finally completed after severals weeks of rain dumping everyday. Also, Zane and company were very sweet guys that made the experience even more pleasurable because we shared some smiles and laughs when they were out here working. The professionalism and pleasant week-to-week interactions I had with Michele Wilson who handled the scheduling and other particulars of managing the project also deserves mention. The concrete was also done so professionally and flawlessly that it added the extra 'oomph' that was needed to beautifully set off the pool. All in all, Tallman Pools comes highly recommended by me. Thanks Ed for running such a top-notch company!You've made me ecstatically happy. My Best Regards, Sara L. Mitchell

Let me just say that Tallman Pools has been great to work with. I am a very picky person and I never had a problem with anything they did. Ed is so very thorough and gets involved in every step to make sure it is done right. It shows that he is more interested in making sure you get a good product than making money, that is very rare this day and time. I have recommended them several times already. His installers assisted me and they were great to work with, very hard workers. The pool has been great with no issues and we are glad we got the tile on it (thanks Ed), that really set it off. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a pool and especially anyone wanting to do it themselves. Thanks to Ed and Tallman Pools, we were able to pull it off and have a much nicer product than we could afford having someone else do it. Sincerely, Randy and Regina S Oglethorpe GA

My husband and I were planning on giving our backyard a facelift with a new patio. The idea of a pool came up in the planning. It seemed a bit far fetched for our budget and size of our backyard(it is quite small), until we found out about the assisted installation program by Tallman Pools. Tallman Pools provides you with their custom fiberglass shell. From there you can customize your pool with a salt or chlorine system, custom lights, heat pump, etc.. They will give you a delivery date and you are in charge of organizing the contractors that are involved for excavation, electricity, and pouring the concrete around the border of the pool. Ed, the owner personally gave us a tour of his facillity and kept telling us that once we have our contractors lined up to make sure to call him for detailed instructions. Overall, the installation of the pool was a breeze, Tallman Pools super helpful and it saved us a lot of money! Our daughter has already spent days in the pool and I find us finally using and spending time in our backyard! I would highly recommend this company. Eva P.

FYI: I also wrote a review on Angies List which is longer so please check it out. I first worked with Tallman Pools in 2007 when they installed my large fiberglass pool. It was a tremendous value and every step of the process went great! Ed Tallman, the owner, checked and double checked every step of the process to ensure everything went according to plan. I was impressed with that. He was also very transparent and honest throughout the process. Since then I've recommended him to 3 other friends who all have Tallman Pools now. If I had to do it again, I'd call them back. The pools is gorgeous, the install was a breeze, but I think I'm most impressed with these people and how honest they were with me and with my friends. You won't go wrong with these guys! Good luck!

After comparing many pool companies we went with Tallman Pools and are happy we did so. The quality of the pool is superior to any others we saw, the price is unbeatable, and the people are a delight to work with.

Tallman Pools gave me low quality workmanship when installing the pool and very poor customer service after installation. The concrete finish work was poured with very poor craftsmanship. There are two cold joints in the concrete that looks terrible. The worst joint is right beside the main steps into the pool. It took over ten months for them to return and repair a broken pipe in the preformed steps. The bottom of the pool was not finished smooth. I tried numerous times to have them repair the problems; they ended up just never returning my phone calls. I would not recommend Tallman Pools to anyone.
